About LF Gillis

LF Gillis was raised outside the small, North Florida town of Madison. She has worked in multiple factories, worked in the hospitality industry, and even ran her own farm. Now that her children are grown, what was once a hobby has grown into a full-blown obsession.

Since her inception, Sylvia-Ann "Syl" Felix has taken up much of Gillis' time. The Legacy has taken so long to write, that one friend even wonders if Gillis is writing it for herself, or does she intend to find an audience. As a chef once told me, "Never expect anyone to eat what you wouldn't eat, yourself. I apply that advice to my writing as well as my cooking. If I struggle to read a chapter, I expect my audience will too. Therefore, the chapter goes on the chopping block.

I am in the pursuit of perfection. I may never achieve it, but I will never stop trying.

Reviews

Review by: Julie Elizabeth Powell on April 03, 2017 :
This was a disturbing read about abuse and the effects that can last a lifetime. It is also about hope and that there can be kindness with some humans.

Sylvia-Ann suffers terribly with an abusive mother and an alcoholic father that doesn't seem to care. As the story evolves we see that nothing is really ever black and white, and yet as one generation gives way to the next, maybe the cycle will continue - or is it choice?

Themes such as abuse, alcoholism, religion, romance, relationships and more, make for an interesting read.

I think there was some unfinished business, but this make be tackled in the next book.

There are numerous typos and grammatical issues, however, the writing style is good - fast-paced with an easy flow.

Worth reading.
